Dependable Saddle Testimonial

“My Cole Saddle is the most versatile and dependable saddle I have ever used. From starting colts, to roping that big gelding, to bucking one out at a ranch rodeo, this saddle gets the job done!”

-Jasper Eshelman
Bozeman, Montana

Excellent Craftsmanship Testimonail

“I've had many custom saddles. None of them come close to my Cole Saddle. The craftsmanship is excellent. I ride over 100 head of horses a year, and I have yet to see the saddle not fit well. When all comes 'tight' I just say, 'At least it's the Cole'!”

Gorgeous and Lightweight Saddle Testimonial

“I have had my saddle for just about a year now, and it has been great for all of the seasons' works. From riding fence in the summers, to fall round-up and late winter calving, to spring branding and turnout, it has stood up to it all. A very well built and rugged saddle, and also the most comfortable I've ever had. Sam and Cathy were great to work with. Thank you!”

Favorite Tack Testimonial

“My Cole Saddle is not only stylish, but comfortable. I have ridden several breeds of horses ranging from ponies to drafts, and it works like a charm fitting each horse. My Cole Saddle is not only my favorite piece of tack, but I won't get on a horse I think might buck without it.”

Breast Collar Testimonial

“I started riding in my late 50's, so the decision to buy myself a new saddle in my mid-60's was a big commitment. I met Sam and Cathy two years before I ordered my saddle and spoke with many saddlemakers in the interim. When I placed my order, Sam and Cathy were totally attentive to my needs. The breast collar was not a good fit initially. They were gracious, accommodating, and fast about getting it just right. I love how the saddle positions my legs when I ride and really appreciate the light weight that comes with the Cable Rigging and saddle construction.”

Excellent Craftsmanship Testimonaial

“So far, I've put 200 miles on my Cole Saddle this hunting season. The craftsmanship is excellent, and I appreciate the attention to detail. I am extremely happy with the Cable Rigging, definitely beyond my expectations. This is a saddle that sits you in the seat not on the seat. Working with Sam and Cathy was very easy. They were open to all my ideas.”

Gorgeous and Lightweight Saddle Testimonial

“I love my saddle. I finally have a saddle that fits my horse. He doesn't squirt forward anymore when I try to get on him, and he can collect up underneath himself and move freely when saddled. Riding is such a pleasure now, and it is so nice to know my saddle fits him. Plus, it is gorgeous and lightweight, two definite bonuses. Thank you!”
